Albuquerque deals in the -- -- not like where they gap in left center -- its not very. It's gonna roll all the way to the fans Salisbury rounding clarity being waved to all and scores easily on an RBI double. For Shane Victorino and -- his seven to the -- right. Jokester. Here and -- area the dreadful outcome of the -- that there is such down you know oh lead it would never. -- come come back from it now second inning was brutal. And it in the rarest of all occurrences is what led to it which is the Adori error on -- potential double play ball. We're waiting for our text machine updated looks like it's it's it's like more sluggish -- Ed Asner and follow us after a cheese fest creep in aligned. The slot working on it. Shall with a tranquilizer so people are tweeting me if they wanna get involved and mentioned stylish or John writer and a mind that might yet WEEI. Untoward or in this case is not surprised PB spit the bit today. As a Padre you know five in the National League division series -- gave up eight runs in game one. Batters figure him out quick -- yet it was treasuries not sharp and not putting the ball. Where he wants to he's got to have location or he's just going to be an especially at this point of the residential real blow guys away. Mikey McCarver makes Joseph Morgan look like Stephen Hawking did you did you hear -- call Victor Reno Pedroia. And I guess I corrected I was elicited to the radio broadcast David -- -- but I but I saw some mentions of that. I didn't hear that we got to amend -- car next -- Malia recession view situation hello Matt. I guess I don't know how you do -- that to bed really dangerous show but I gotta say it is all bent it is. -- -- concerns are I don't know where the right mentality that plate discipline went to. You know Chinese mentioned in the last segment would it be so much strikeout. Per game series right to me that unacceptable. We. It talent that's in the slide out. There's an old you know 678910. Pitch at bat. -- that approach well. Let me just interject here map because. What I think is the case here is that. Leland when that these guys and said look this is a team that will want you to throw sixers have been. Which is -- no secrets that any steamed -- -- and she's saying to his him there this is what the Red Sox gonna try to duties so let's start him off as a policy here until further notice. A company -- the first pitch fastball strike is they're not gonna swing at it anyway they're not a team the first ball. Hitters and that we can sneak around with the breaking balls on the second and third pitch and get him in a 12 hole you're 02 or you know. And that's don't you know the other thing is to is what. There are a lot of fighting force that's a problem you know -- Landers since September and I know they beat him but barely. That was the first -- -- in September 18 all right. You know he's got a going on. I don't care for the Red Sox or some of those yankees teams in their prime going all the way back it you -- it it's gonna have a tough time and -- like -- In Detroit our own loan or -- -- know he's on Detroit but we're gonna turn now. Oh that's right he's the only one as the Detroit. You don't have to bet -- that was gonna make some really good Detroit jokes like I hurt so bad in Detroit did Gladys had to lay off one of the tips. -- know or stop smoking had to fire one of the miracles you know Peter Singer in Massachusetts. Is driving back. They can't -- don't don't -- not what you guys late night so. You don't look at that awful James -- the other one right to vote you. And a very -- isn't it isn't an overall strategy. Air were on the part of the Red Sox. To not swing at the first pitch once a while knowing that that's what's been going on this whole series there again the guys behind in the count and to analyzing them would jump. Yeah you know I think that even -- -- -- saying things like these guys are replied I think -- -- an effective. -- even black you know at the curb or -- but it was a lot of course it's great pitcher. But it got one goal burst its changeup district reaching a breaking ball up -- PGA walked out -- all -- secondary hunger strike. And the responses -- -- he got twisted up in all their approach and they wanted to be here and Karachi to break it also sort of like. Didn't catch 22 there that don't -- -- that you don't -- that normal approach their their they're finding out that he and -- off. They just bring him gonna die and desperately. Not get -- strike a -- -- just as good. But he's first restore very popularly when he hit the Grand Slam was on the first pitch he saw. Taken you know that. Knowing full well that there at the recession that kind of team they're gonna try to run up. Account run of the pitch count on yeah every -- starting at the very first inning at these guys are throwing strikes they're swinging and missing at the second and third pitches. Eyes are opening making it easy for this tiger staff to look you've. Better than they are. Well look at this step is good news we're seeing right now it is really good on -- got to look at the right spot in -- Don't their approach right now -- back at like six spitting image and Mike Napoli and the rights dinner and -- with a base of the middle novel based in the middle. I got a few more depth from the sky you know electronics that could melt steel -- going to achieve your lot I'll speak -- the strike. And it just seemed -- look like all happier not but not there on the ball. It up pick up the middle but -- long at bat together. Should go to public a lot of it. You wrote this form it is not part of what we need to get the opportunity to correct in his game that didn't book the big hit here and there. No or it was a book TV -- and near the post game comments the what did you see Lou was in his off speed that was -- that was given vision problems there. We go to vision and a NT with -- -- regard we replied yeah so it's rubbed off on the hitters though pictures. Yes I hit -- and all you know. Accusing bat on the black stripes and any. You know he's going to let slider and what does that actually Oprah all sorts of Dayton post -- strike and he kept a loaded. The ought to -- right -- thirty group they aren't optimal Doughty he ate all it will all -- now. -- or pitch walk all what is -- slider because I don't think it is because he wanted to attack right here. And he's got -- trouble or deeply orbit. Joy golf ball really hurt and it we all -- -- -- -- -- to -- -- pulled up. 9% aren't. -- that one player terribly hot orange. -- ask you this about some of these Detroit tiger players because there's some my affairs. Johnny -- Jhonny Peralta the human typographical error moon -- they like to call. Do you think it is do you think his cheeks look more like two whopper is on a plate or or set or prince fielder's ass cheeks. I don't leaders biggest builders who. Can. -- -- -- you know they pick up some people -- interviewed Ted Ernie and debate got that my. -- got I've never seen anything like -- Cabrera right. A browser and personal and they -- he jumps up -- catch that ball he lands any hits the ground and it -- his feet on the ground crew has to come out fix alls. It's up with -- -- guys that may never see it as a much lard on one team in my life. Wouldn't that it was stolen base by that you had Sam Wallace and -- unbearably yet go to. They don't pay cut -- what beta build it heavy brick to barely run but they don't stroke the ball to play. I couldn't believe Cabrera -- items like they had a sale which it now on second base when I guess the yet. Had the big question low -- died about Bogart's he's probably going to be O line up where you think you'll be in place in German over. I think going to be in the line Communists didn't think -- -- shortstop but. I wrecked it into that game and insurance president actual walk and struck out flat out audit -- Look at all of the currently. Doing a lot of people lost -- -- -- -- to put the -- and -- and what -- page. Sure I I don't commit third bigamy to -- -- you know he might -- it -- the -- -- one idiotic and making a replacement later be -- but the fact is that both guys have sucked so bad he can't do worse. He can't -- the plate. Don't know and you know I really impressed adept at and -- to the president be 20 sure he doesn't. It would phase one single parent I even took a walk in camp Panetta at a game one against and light it up some pretty up its which has been an insider. He just impressive that he you know I'm an -- it looks. -- eight inning seventh inning bringing -- -- through. You can bring that puts up substantially probably to bring somebody else Indian community to do that took as a. And -- but have been glued to -- and a bogus hopefully gives him some some opposite gives in the sport but don't I mean it doesn't come back to his well. Now the middle Gavin get Pedroia go and Ortiz Napoli some of the designated here. Yeah I agree that big -- game one loss pre or outlook gamecube. -- -- And I liked Adam Miller two liter straight Olympic joined Villa or what -- -- royal. Option victory in the first run again -- the look hit or. -- -- braves play and play your your two leaders were. Direct impact in that wind in the two guys really struggled -- rookies how one gets into your right. Yeah all the Grand Slam and it it looked sure -- So. Yeah I think it it's -- today is not let those two guys we are just people don't base it around but. Do you expect your leaders stepped up when union mold -- or -- You know it's been pretty anemic and you know course tomorrow is game five this thing all tied up -- the one thing we know is they will come back to Fenway apartment. Tomorrow's a very pivotal game in this situation because the tigers know they don't -- tomorrow's game then they have very little chance and if any of I taken Tuesday with a way -- Red Sox went home well look who their next two pitchers are though. Idea yes. Yeah the other day you gotta respect article that you common back on the ball sharply but -- -- -- she was so real guys -- well. -- must win. They're bleeding on Wednesday when you lose all. Public look at history but competing I think in your -- today. And seventeen jail yet only short time as a series goodbye to -- In what was one game well. While all. I don't it to please lord please don't numbers. Come but -- look -- the -- -- an amount that can't -- integrity back Galactica to meddle in order. All right the fabulous little Maloney who's not and Detroit and of course has hope his family's grateful for that disease safe and sound in the commonwealth of -- chooses. It at that point. Doctor -- I spoke they -- your guys are good guys that -- Vietnam. So we're gonna take a break here and we have you on hold -- know your own holding a Jeff Joseph Hank and we -- Wink yeah I like it was good and even a wink I hope we as a woman.
